I suppose that I should have expected something like this sooner or later, with Britain gripped in Bingo mania at the moment. Here is the chance to win a prize using your Spectrum and a great deal of luck or time.

The game is an automatic Bingo machine with four cards displayed and one not displayed played by the Spectrum. As usual any line in any direction filled allows you to shout 'Bingo' and claim your prize. As there is a winner in every game, gelling a real prize isn't that simple.

There are four numbers at the bottom of the screen to be matched by the winner of your home game before you can apply for the real thing. Then you record a piece of data and send the tape to the publisher who sends another tape and so on.

The game is visually fine with each call shown effectively and, if you have the Currah Speech unit, they are called out loud and clear.

I can't wait to see if micro users are just as hooked on Bingo as the rest of the world!
